Fire Safety Home Tour – Fire Prevention Week

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is "Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere." 

This theme focuses on three fundamental actions people can take to be fire-safe:

  • LOOK for potential fire hazards around your home. Take action to prevent fire from starting:
  • LISTEN for the smoke alarms in an emergency. Early detection of fire provided by smoke alarms gives you the extra seconds you need to get out safely.
  • LEARN two ways out of every room. Practice a home fire escape plan.

Deputy Fire Marshal Browne and Chief Durdin will tour the Princess Margaret Home Lottery Grand Prize Showhome and demonstrate actions people can take to keep themselves and their families safe from fire. This will include preventing fires through safe cooking and home heating behaviours, testing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and practicing a home fire escape plan.  

Firefighters and a fire truck from the Oakville Fire Department will help demonstrate fire safe behaviours.

Location: 393 Maple Grove Drive, Oakville, ON
Date: Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 10 a.m.
